Perhaps an Oilers team need is finding 3rd and 4th line NHLers who can contribute. Eager is a borderline NHLer. The fact that he is a fixture on the Oilers speaks volumes as to why the Oilers are not close to being a competitive team. However Eager does help the Oilers neverending quest of selecting the number 1 pick in every draft.
